The Ski Channel’s “Shane & the McConkeys” premiering at X-Dance tonight

Posted By: The Ski Channel on January 21, 2010 7:12 am

Today is a big day for us here at The Ski Channel. Our very own Zeke Piestrup, writer, host, filmmaker, homie, is showing his film tonight at X-Dance in Utah!

We can’t think of a better place to showcase this film honoring the irreplaceable Shane McConkey than at the 10th Anniversary of X-Dance. The film, “Shane & the McConkeys”, highlights Shane’s last week at home before his tragic accident in Italy that took his life. Zeke was lucky enough to be with the McConkeys during that week and get some incredible, heart-tugging footage.

“I feel incredibly lucky and fortunate to have been with Shane McConkey last March,” says Piestrup.  “The film is a snapshot in time of a family man pursuing his passions.  Shane McConkey is a straight-up legend and hero.  With the film, I definitely  wanted to do right by Shane, and I think I did.  I’m very proud of the film.”

The show goes on at 6:55 PM MST tonight. Click here for a full lineup of films at this year’s X-Dance. Go Zeke!
